Artist Sinem Disli invites you to dine under the stars. We are bringing the starlight indoors with the help of 33 handmade iridescent yellow light fixtures, arranged artfully with a gentle slope of the night sky. The yellowish-white color has been declared to be the average color of the universe in 2009, after the scientists had analyzed the light from 200.000 galaxies, formed by stars individually indistinguishable by the naked eye. The artist captured that warm beige shade with yellow LED lights in 6 different sizes, which are then arranged in the shapes of 33 constellations.

Even with the pandemic, it was still a great experience. I have been going to Ayza for years. It’s a little different now, but I felt safe and comfortable to be there. I haven’t been eating out a lot.
Thank you Ayza for making my birthday dinner with a friend a good one.

Great selection of food and wines and of course chocolate. The tables were laid out well, and although unusual, it was totally fine that we had to go up to the front to order! A good idea to keep staff in one area! I would definitely come back here again!

This is the first time we went after the pandemic started. We were seated in the tent area which was cutely decorated with Plexiglas separation between tables. They had little propane heaters which really kept us warm while the outside temperature was in the low 40s. The food and service was great as always

Food and drinks were great especially value at happy hour. Made a reservation and they made us sit inside so couldn’t even enjoy the ambience. The table was weirdly positioned that we were just watching everyone in the garden. There were 2 open tables that seated 4 people located in the garden that was open the entire time but still they made us sit inside. I noticed later they let a 2 person group sit in the 4 person table. Manager felt a bit rude and avoided eye contact with us.

I'm also impressed with the precautions taken during the pandemic. Their safely protocols make me feel perfectly comfortable dining there. Ayza remains one of my restaurants in the city!

Love this place. If just has this beautiful magic atmosphere that makes you think you are Juliette Binoche in Chocolat or the main character in some other romantic movie full of sweets and wine. I never want to leave this place, and my only issue sometimes is that the food menu is so small? If we want to share something, we usually split the tomato soup which is the best option, or the avocado dip. I wish there were more items suitable for sharing, and in general I wish portions were tiny bit bigger.

I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, even though I had reservations and had arrived on time. I had ordered a mulled wine with my meal, and the wine was forgotten. I had to go back to the front to order again. My salad was soggy as well. I normally enjoy this place, and it’s my go-to. However, I was disappointed with the customer service that I had received. I will still return, but I hope the service and attitudes will be more cordial and precise next time.

AYXA Wine & Chocolate Bar was a unique dining experience that I will remember for years to come. The service was prompt and attentive, enthusiastically accommodating my party. The food was excellent, with a wide variety of enticing and delectable options (the peppermint chocolate martini will always be a talking point for my party). As someone visiting the city for a weekend, I can wholeheartedly say that choosing this location for a special dinner met all of my expectations. In a city with countless fine options, no regrets about spending my time there.

I was disappointed in the approach to being safe during COVID. Having the customer go up to the front to order makes no sense because people are congregating and getting up from their table unnecessarily. Also, it made no sense to have customers get up to get water and have everyone touch the same cooler to fill the water cup - again, adding more risk. If the waiters are able to come over to the table to bring food, I’m not sure why they can’t take the order and bring water.

First of all there are no servers. You scan the menu (which is fine considering Covid) however you have to go yourself to the greeting booth and place the order there. The server does not come to your table only to bring food. Ridiculous considering it’s all pretty much outdoor dining.

The food was not good at all. I ordered a burger well done and it was red/pink inside. The artichoke dip was awful and the chips that came with it were stale.

Overall terrible dinning and service and will not visit again. Too many great restaurants in the area to visit here again.
